Athens — A tradition almost 30 years in the making continues at Trinity Valley Community College with a Family Day observance Saturday.

Family Day began at the college in the mid-1980s with a crowd of modest proportions. Since that time it has grown into an anticipated event.

The event is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. in the parking lot just east of Bruce Field, where bounce houses, face painting and a family photo booth are just a few of the activities planned.

A pep rally is scheduled at 5:30 p.m. It will feature performances by the Cardettes, Cardinal Regiment and Cardinal Cheerleaders.

There will also be special recognition of other campus groups and families that have traveled the farthest and families that have the most members present.

Following the pep rally, there will be food and a tailgating atmosphere until the 7 p.m. kickoff between the Cardinals and Cisco College Wranglers.

The college will distribute complimentary general admission tickets during the carnival.
